We are an Adopter of the National Industry Standards for Homeownership Counseling and Foreclosure Intervention Counseling. Our counselors maintain industry recognized certifications including NeighborWorks NCHEC certifications in Foreclosure Intervention, Home Ownership Counseling, and Financial Capabilities. We work with individuals and families to help improve their housing and/or financial situation. We provide individual and group counseling, and group education classes on various topics that promote financial security, economic self-sufficiency and home ownership. We can help you prepare for buying your first home. Our certified counselors will educate you on the home buying process, and help you prepare for the underwriting and lending requirements to successfully obtain home ownership. We participate in the Detroit Home Mortgage Program, helping aspiring homeowners to qualify for a mortgage.
Our Homebuyer Education Class meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.

We cover each step of the mortgage process from finding a realtor to closing on your home.

"Mrs. Stallings was BEYOND helpful. I have an infant child and she took time from her personal schedule to assist me. She has continually checked on my progress and the status on my search for a home. I can’t convey how appreciative I am not only for the program but for her. Above and beyond doesn’t begin to describe what she has done."

"Your coaches work really well with the kids. I can see my son’s improvement since starting the Youth Clinic. He’ll be ready for your league."
- D. Matthews
"I’m so glad that I stopped procrastinating and actually signed up for it. It was well worth it, and even though I had started preparing for owning a home (improving my credit score, etc.), this class has given me the motivation I need to keep working at it."
